Where is Tarun?

submitted on September 22, 2009 by emma123 in "Member's Lounge"
A very very bad day Cry . I got my my noteback some time back and now it was attacked by virus. I used kaspersky Security for Ultra Portables but it didn't help. All the .exe are corrupted i think. I tried to do system restore but while clicking the system restore it is not responding.
My netbook is dead Cry .

Please help me .....
Any body has got this problem if so what you did?

    I'm still here. I've had a lot going on that has taken up my time though.


    emma, give my Anti-Malware Toolkit a try and see if you can use it to get programs you need to remove any possible infections.


    There's also using the command prompt and doing things such as sfc /purgecache followed by sfc /scannow as it will help repair files in your computer.


    If you're on XP, I'd recommend using Dial-a-fix as well.

    Curious, and I'm sure I already know the answer given your situation, but are you running any back-up software, which you could rely on to revert your computer back to a previous state?

    The reason I ask is that quite a few of these can be activated and ran before your computer boots the windows operating system, and it most likely would be able to bypass the issue of .exe files being corrupted and unobtainable, especially if it can utilize a bootable media CD.

    (The latter might require you to change the boot order of your drives in BIOS, but given that its a netbook I'm betting it does not have a CD/DVD drive either.)

    It sounds like a bad rootkit.

    What said the Anti-Malware Toolkit is infected?

    Sorry to hear the bad news emma. You may just want to try a bootable pendrive linux OS in order to backup your files and then reformat your little netbook. It is possible to reinstall Windows from a flash drive as well and it goes faster than installing from CD. In the alternative you could always get an external drive to make it a little easier.

    Another tip: Using System Restore in Windows can be a good and a bad thing. Good because you can backup to a restore point if you delete something or if an error occurs. Bad when a virus takes hold of your system because it can corrupt previous restore points making it almost impossible to remove the virus.
